The Revolution Will Not Be Curated: Twenty-First Century Perspectives on Art and Politics
This symposium seeks to investigate the historical and contemporary artists' attempts to deploy art as a means of political force and to critically engage with radically changing conditions of modern and contemporary life. This tradition stretches across media and time, from the visual strategies of the historical avant-garde in the early twentieth century to more recent artistic work emerging in opposition to globalism, and the ensuing political, economic, and military domination of the new world's super-powers. Selected from an international pool of applicants, six students presented their papers at the symposium.
